Man vs. reality TV

I gave up television several years ago when I bid farewell to Jack Bauer and the final season of "24."

Other than sports, worthwhile news and the occasional "Office" episode, I've chosen to put the box on the back burner.

Look out for those in need around us

In my opinion, this is pure greed. I have no intentions of leaving anyone out; this includes all proprietors, lawyers and Indian chiefs and let's don't forget the mayor and his committee and all the rich. It's too bad the economy hasn't hit you all yet but don't worry, it ...

Where did Haiti donations go?

Two years after a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands, more than a half-million Haitians are still sleeping under tarps, often in camps without enough water or toilets.
